    Pros

    The office is bright with great views of SF Bay on the Embarcadero. Co-workers are very smart and friendly. Management is exceedingly friendly and will do what they can to address any issues or concerns you might have. Mind mapping software is a great product and interesting to work on.

    Cons

    Legacy code and previous choices have created a lot of complexity and inefficiencies where new development is concerned, which lowers developer velocity and general enjoyment of work. Upper management has abandoned the revenue model that built the company in favor of a corporate-focused subscription model.

    Advice to Management

    I don't believe it was wise or necessary to abandon the demographic that got the company where it is today. It didn't have to be an either/or solution.
